I moved from San Francisco to Zürich, Switzerland in 2005 with my husband and then toddler son. Like any transition, it was tough at first, but the beautiful Swiss landscape made it much easier to love where I lived. It took us awhile to figure out how to enjoy hiking and traveling with kids, but now it's our favorite thing to do. I want my kids to love being outside and enjoy simple pleasures like picking wildflowers and throwing rocks in a river. So far it's working.
